A work permit is issued within 7 business days, a long-term visa is issued withing 10 business days and a temporary residence permit is issued within 15 business days.
  • Create a job. If you don’t want to work for anyone and will to keep being free, then register your own company in Ukraine. This company will hire you as its director, and in this case you will get your temporary residence the same way as described above. The only difference is that in this case you can obtain a 3-year residence permit instead of a 1-year. Your company will pay this 5% corporate tax, so it is not a matter of residence but also doing IT business effectively.
